Holiday Inn Beijing Deshengmen
Ranked #215 of 6,606 Hotels in Beijing
Reviewed October 29, 2010

This was the first hotel of our 12 day tour through China and certainly became the benchmark for the rest of the hotels we stayed in afterwards. Rooms were really spacious, clean and modern. My husband and I shared a room with a king size bed. All the little amenties they provide are perfect: soaps, toothbrushes, shaver, slippers, comb, etc.
Bathroom was a good size with great shower pressure. We also had a shower that included a regular hand held and rain shower head. Breakfast was very good and included in our plan. I really wished that the other hotels we stayed in had the same quality and variety. the pain aux raisin was my fave plus they have all the traditional Asian and western breakfast options. You can have noodle soup cooked to order. I really enjoyed the different soups and congee they offered. The two mornings we ate there they changed up the hot food items so it was really nice to find that variety. Unfortunately the day we checked out was way earlier than opening time in the cafe so we got really crappy cold breakfast boxes to go. If you need to change to RMB currency the hotel does it free of charge if you need to break large bills, make sure you do it before 7a otherwise you will have to wait till later in the evening. We wanted to visit the pool but it was under construction.

I, my wife and our adult daughter, stayed there from 10-15 to 10-18. We were traveling with a 55-person tour group and the hotel was packed. Still, we couldn't be more impressed. It is a newer hotel, a year old? The rooms are more than spacious, clean and well-appointed. Staff at the front desk were not supper efficient but the staff at their morning buffet area were more than helpful. We came away totally blown away by the buffet's quality and choices too. Just the breakfast buffet was worth half the room-rate, we thought.

We were troubled by the location at first. It is in a safe but no thrill busy residential/commerical area. You can forget about views and night life. However, we also found out that we could go to most popular places by taxi well within 40 yuan(about 6 USD).

We normally think of Holiday Inns in this country as dependentable budget-minded accomodations. In case of Deshengmen Holiday Inn, we were getting 4-star treatment with motel rates.

After Beijing we also went to Sozhou, Hangzhou and Shanghai. We had a hotel disaster in Shanghai(see my review on Shanghai's Hongqiao Airport Howard Johnson). My wife and I were in Beijing January this year. Our hotel at that time was quite OK but no comparison to this one. I hope the management can maintain the good qualities while improve on the staffing at the front desk. I also hope they will stop charing internet Wi-Fi service. In fact, we are planning our next year's China trip with this hotel in mind.

Great stay at this hotel. I honestly didn't realize how nice Holiday Inns could be. In the US they're just average, but in China...wow! More like a Westin hotel like atmosphere.

Beautiful decor. Friendly staff.

Rooms were really clean, modern, comfortable! Bathroom included many toiletries including toothbrushes and shavers. Multiple types electric outlets-convenient for my camera charger, phone charger, and hair styling tools from the the US.

The breakfast buffet is awesome! Both Chinese and American/English style food options. Chefs work behind the buffet counter to serve fresh eggs, pancakes, noodles, etc. While most of the hotels included breakfast, this was definitely the nicest, freshest, and most elegant set up.

I would definitely stay at this Holiday Inn again!!!!

Rooms- The room is the most important factor in a hotel stay. Our room was clean. The bed was firm, but still comfortable. And it was quiet so we could get a good nights rest before our day of sigh seeing.

Amenities- After a long flight, we wanted to spend the day recovering at the hotel. Unfortunately they did not have a pool or a business center where we could use the internet. We hung out in our room and watched tv, but got a little bored.

Location- There isn't much shopping or eateries around the hotel. We wandered around the area around the hotel and headed back shortly since there was nothing to see or do.

I would recommend this hotel to someone who would be gone the entire day and is looking for a clean comfortable place to sleep.

We arrived a day earlier before our tour started. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, the decor attractive, the staff courteous. The only negative was the poor location of this hotel. It was located in a sort of run-down neighborhood and after walking around the area, we found no good restaurants in the surrounding area. We tried the plain-looking Chinese restaurant next door and the food was disappointing. The walk to the subway was farther than we expected, perhaps a little over a mile away and we didn't find the entrance to the subway easily. If you are not on a tour, I would stay at a hotel in a better location with many restaurants and shops, like Wanfujing area. Another thing is we paid 60 RMB a day for internet.

New hotel normally means good in China. It was just one night stay before flying back Thailand. We had Executive Room which was spacious with a lot of good complimentaries (6 free soft drinks from mini bar, internet, etc). Executive Lounge was comfy and snack/drink was various. It's much quieter than Holiday Inn Express I stayed in Beijing. There was still the sound from street on 15th floor, but didn't bother at all. Incredible fast check-in and check-out.

But, you just cannot count on room service or restaurant! We had late lunch on ground floor buffet restaurant. First, the staffs were so noisy chatting I guess it's just because the main service hours past only us two customers. Second, the staff was either too nervous to serve foreigner, or very new to the job - she had to go ask chef and come and go, for every order we did. For my carrot juice, her explanation WAS the juicer they had was so poor that it could only make watermelon now!? Later, we had room service for Cordon Bleu. On the phone, we repeated "serve with mixed salad" which was written on the menu. Then, it turned out they gave us Cordon Bleu and a Mixed Salad. That's fine, we like vegetables. But the problem was, it was NOT Cordon Bleu! In any other country, we will refuse to pay and laugh at the chef.

The location is closer to downtown Beijing. I recommend people who like to visit Nan Luo Gu Xiang/Hou Hai to consider this hotel. Otherwise, it's really in the local residential area - also means it's the best quailty hotel in this area. The rest around are small local restaurants, convenient stores, bank, etc. but nothing fancy, luxury or international.

I was on a business trip and stayed in this hotel. The hotel is brand new and really looks like it. Everything was shiny & new, and the quality of rooms was higher than my initial expectations. Not luxurious, but very high-end. Also, I think the service was good.

The only thing to be mentioned as down-side is relatively long walking distance (5-10minutes) to nearest subway station.
